A Matchmaking Reveal Gala
Saturday, April 7, 2018
7 – 10 p.m.
$50 per person.
Art patrons who have commissioned original work attend for free.
Mark your calendars for the unveiling of the finished pieces created after the mARkeT Matchmaking Mixer! This will be the owners’ first chance to see the art, as it is unveiled by artist, since commissioning the piece back in October.
The Quincy Art Center will be transformed into an authentic French marketplace. Heavy hors d’oeuvres prepared by local chefs, signature cocktails, performances by local musicians, a variety of entertaining “spectacles” never before seen in Quincy, and the main event: the unveiling of each custom work of art when the new owners get their first glimpse of their new original artwork.
